28 years old, USCF rating 1726. Personal best around 2100 blitz on ICC and Playchess. Around 1800 on FICS (handle: dumbgai). Inactive in OTB competition since 2011.

Beaten a handful of IMs online (mostly through flagging).

If anything I write on these pages offends you, feel free to hand me a beating on FICS.

My opening repertoire: 1. e4 as white, 1. e4 e5 and 1. d4 d5 as black.

Favorite players: Hou Yifan and Magnus Carlsen.

dumbgai: <kellmano> I'm actually Chinese myself, so I'm well aware of the "funny names" and how they're actually supposed to be pronounced. :)

dumbgai: Ari Dale actually had the 2nd best performance relative to rating. He overperformed by 116 Elo points (2291 rating, 2407 TPR). When someone finishes a winless -6 and still gains a bunch of rating points, I think it's fair to say that they probably didn't belong. Yes I know he ...

dumbgai: In a game filled with blunders, Timman caps it off with the ultimate blunder: resigning.

dumbgai: 61...a5!! and 62...b5!! are my favorite moves of this tournament. <notyetagm> needs to come here and comment!

dumbgai: <Shams> That's how it is in sports. Everyone remembers the champions, but few remember (or care) <how> they won. The same goes for chess too. Gelfand came so close to becoming world champion, but how many will remember it in 30 years?

dumbgai: Let Van Kampen have a turn at being the local punching bag.
   Jan-20-15 S Sevian vs A Haast, 2015 (replies)
dumbgai: A masterful attacking game by Sam Sevian. Haast didn't do herself any favors with those 7 consecutive pawn moves in the opening when she had no pieces developed.
   Jan-16-15 B Michiels vs A Haast, 2015 (replies)
dumbgai: Epic fail. 55...Ke8 followed by Nd3 and Nc5+ (if white plays Ke6) is easily winning.

dumbgai: Leko is only 35, but it feels like he's been around forever, doesn't it?
   Dec-23-14 V Fedoseev vs Leko, 2014 (replies)
dumbgai: Leko tried to play for a draw in a winning position, and failed.
